GTA Penis - NSFW

Ok, hopefully this hasn't already been asked (I did go back 140 entries and saw nothing, but my apologies if I missed it):

Has anyone seen the latest GTA IV controversy regarding the full frontal male nudity in its expansion pack that is/was released today?

If not, you can go here and check it out: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3172816

This is obviously NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being really superduper weird, how weird is it to comment on the status of a Facebook "friend" with whom you've only spoken like 4 or 5 times in passing?



This kid Griffin was in my Italian class last spring and we have several mutual friends. I just saw on my news feed, "Griffin washed his phone with his pants!"

I want to say something smartassy like, "Are pants generally a good cleaning agent?!"

just moved into my own place w/ my bf and we're trying to decorate w/ out spending a bunch of money cuz we want to simplify and save up for some sweet little folding bikes.

Anyway do any of you have any good suggestions about LJ or other websites that are DIY without being too boring? we want some good suggestions on how to decorate and make things for ourselves without needing too many tools or experience and we want things to look pretty modern, etc.

we're also interested in recycling a lot of items in new and interesting ways in order to be more sustainable. any good LJ groups or sites for that?

what are some of the most creative things that you have recycled and remade into decorative accessories or furniture?

Does anybody use/work for ChaCha?
What have your experiences been like?

I've worked for them since November, had an unsatisfactory experience as a customer, posted about it in the Guide forum and the mods BAHHHHHHHLEETED that shit because, essentially, they don't allow anything that might tarnish ChaCha's reputation. I like them for the most part, but I'm wondering if any customers have had any issues with questions or if any guides/expediters/whatever have had issues with the company itself.

How does the awesomeness of Kite Liberator compare to Kite the original?

EDIT: Just saw it. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, they added SPACE MONSTERS. I AM NOT KIDDING YOU. FUCKING SPACE MONSTERS!

I was disappointed with Kite, as at first it seemed like it might be a cool vigilante plot, but once you find out the stuff at the end, it just makes no sense at all. OMGSPOILERSOMGDONTREAD PASTHERE

She could have killed Akai at any damn time while he was off guard, even resorting to poisoning him and the big guy at the same time. Plus, continuing to have sex with him and killing people that she knows are innocent is BS.

And why do they even put the hentai in there? There isn't enough to make a legit hentai movie, and it's too explicit to have any value.

Nicknames


So last night at my Equine Evaluation class we had an exam - part of it was a written exam and the other part was giving oral reasons. I walked into the room to give my reasons and my instructor looked at me oddly and declared that I need a nickname. It was fairly random and I was slightly confused so I just kind of stared back and went, 'huh?' Golden then told me that I look like I need a nickname. I have to leave for my Equine Science class in a few and he's also the instructor for that course. I'm kind of nervous about what his nickname for me might be...

I hate my life

my new neighbors have 4 kids under the age of 5 all running around, screaming, skreaching jumping and crying. Last night the parents had ALOT of what sounded like DAMN GOOD SEX and their bed in on the same wall as mine is... so i heard pretty much everything. So needless to say I got NO sleep. In the lease we all sign, it states no loud noises, washing machines tvs or parties between 11 pm and 8 am ....

I work first and need to sleep and night and my husband works 3rds and needs to sleep during the day.

Do I go over there and talk to them?
or do I go to the landlord?

I want to get contacts again, but over the past few years my eyes have gotten extremely dry, I use eye drops throughout the day help control it. I got a few Acuvue Moist dailies from my doctor to try out, but after 6-8 hours they felt very dry and I had to switch back to glasses or put in eye drops. Are there any other contacts that work well with dry eyes?

All the pro movers I have been calling either haven't answered their phones/online quotes OR are way higher priced than they lead you to believe (I highly doubt my 3 bedroom move would take one crew the NINE HOURS quoted to me @ $130/hour for a load/unload only [no packing!] job).

I found a guy on craigslist who quoted me a flat rate of $285 for two guys and a truck. I should just drive behind them to make sure they don't take off with my shit while my husband drives in his car as well and take my fucking chances, Y/N?

Added incentive : There's no vendetta thread calling him out as a rip off artist and he sounded very professional on the phone.

ask_a_nurse hasn't replied and my doctor is ridiculously slow in responding to e-mails, so I come to you. 

When you have a wound that's oozing a little, should you keep it bandaged to keep germs out or should you let it breathe so it can dry out?



I went to the doctor yesterday and I was given a care sheet.  He told me to change the bandage as needed but I forgot to ask the above question.  I also want to add that the gauze stuck to my wound when I removed it to shower today and I had to soak it to peel it off little by little.  I have the feeling it wouldn't have happened if my wound was dry when it was applied.  I'm afraid of this new gauze sticking again because it's painful as you can imagine.

My mom discovered ebay and decided to buy herself a used laptop. The little thing was cheap and doesn't do much, but it allows her to read forwards and watch stupid videos on YouTube so she's happy.

Or she was until I tried to install service pack 2 on it so she could download MSN messenger and we discovered her copy of Windows XP is a ripoff. Which I really wouldn't give a rats ass about except now it's going to lock her out in 12 days. I didn't even know they could do that!

Anyway, I think it's the responsibility of the seller to provide a genuine copy of Windows XP. I don't think it'll happen, but I think it's what should happen. Maybe I'm bias because it's my poor sweet mother though, so...

Who is responsible for replacing the bad copy of xp?

1. Is there a script/add-on that will expand all the comments to an entry - even if the entry has multiple pages? I tried using one (can't remember its name) and it would expand all comments that were on one page, but I had to do it on every page as I went.

2. Also, a screencapping script/add-on/something that will cap the page at a normal size? Screengrab makes tiny, tiny pictures that are useless to me unless I upload them to a host like Photobucket. The idea is that I'd like to screencap posts for keeping on my PC as one image so that if they are deleted later I still have them. I've been using the "Save Page As" and saving as a complete webpage, but then it has to have a separate folder where it saves all the images in the post and it eats a lot of space. :(

People keep criticizing me because I don't want to go into the professional world. I'd rather work at a grocery store or something and work my way up to a managerial position. I realize I still wouldn't make that much money, but I'd be able to make enough to live comfortably.

I have a Bachelor's degree but I do my best at customer service jobs. I have an office job thing right now and I can't stand the bureaucracy and just sitting around all day in general, but I know that working as a cashier and things like that are things I could actually do well, not just passably.

What is so wrong with wanting to do what I know I'm capable of doing rather than becoming a professional just for the reputation? Why do people keep insisting that I need to go after my dreams (whatever those are, because I don't really have any) instead of being realistic about my life?

Last Monday I told my math teacher that I wasn't going to be in class on Wednesday and asked what I should do. She told me to just do the next section of homework. Today I went to class and found out that she had collected homework on Wednesday (she collects it randomly). So after class I handed my assignment to her and explained how I wasn't there on Wednesday. She told me that she wouldn't accept it because it was late and I should have given it to someone in the class to hand in for me. What should I do?

a) Remind her that I told her I wasn't going to be there and she only told me to go a section ahead on homework. If I knew that she was going to collect the homework I would have handed it in beforehand.
b) Let it go.

What's the worst job interview you've ever been to? Did you end up getting the job anyway?
I interviewed for an admin. role with a branch of the government once; and the lady who interviewed me spent most of the time talking about the way I'd laid out my CV - "Oh, you don't see orange much on CVs, that's very interesting...you know, you could have centered this text rather than aligning it to the left...is this Tahoma? One of my favourite fonts...10 point? Or 11 point? Hmmm, nice...". The rest of the time, she spent grilling me about how good a secret-keeper I was because a lot of the things the branch dealt with were "confidential, extremely confidential - do you understand? Very, very private...". They weren't even a particularly interesting part of the government either, it was like the Department of Planning and Development or something. I wasn't offered the job.

Has your job been affected by the economic downturn?

I have started to grow some of my own produce, and I am pretty new to the whole eating more healthy/sustainable thing. I now only shop at the farmers market, but I still have NO IDEA how to cook

I am not a vegetarian but would like to only meat/fish 1-2x a week.

So I am looking for some help on finding sites and LJ communities that have quick healty/vegetarian recipes. I am Middle Eastern so I would like a variety of different foods from other countries.

But once again, I am not a big foodie. I don't know how to cook and I am just starting out but I am kind of getting tired of just making beans, rice, and soup ;) I go to school full time and work part time, so I just need quick ideas that are relatively easy to cook and don't require all types of ingredients

please give me any and all your favorite sites and LJ communities. Thanks!!

A question about questions

I teach grade 8 Language Arts and Social Studies. I have a SmartBoard in my classroom. If you don't know what that is, it's an interactive whiteboard. Basically, a big touch screen.

I have this routine where my kids come into my class and do an attendance question on the SmartBoard. Here's a photo:

They move their dot to the answer that corresponds with their opinion. Though I often like to relate the question to whatever we're learning that day, sometimes, I'm not able to do that. So sometimes I ask questions about their favourites or a controversial issue or an opinion about something.

So, do you have any ideas for questions I can ask my grade 8s? It needs to be a question with multiple choice answers.

The pain has lessened considerably but I feel its more swollen. Is it possible that the antibiotics are just taking their time to have an effect? Anything I could do to ease the swelling?

I do realise that the internets is not a reliable source of information etc and if I get really worried I'll find an emergency dentist. I am going to wait til Friday morning and if it's no better I will go back in (I'm not going to be here on Monday to leave it longer)

When was the last time you wanted to slap someone?

Monday, at the jewelry store.  Excuse me for not wanting the same engagement ring as 95% of my acquaintances and people that walk by me on the street.  STFU, bitch.

In calculus, what is a 'fit parameter'? I can't find anything about it in my textbook and Google was no help whatsoever. It's used in a discussion of exponential regressions and data modeling. Does anyone know?

What do you think is the least amount of money someone could comfortably live on per month (comfortably meaning spending $100-200 on "extras" and the rest on essentials and having a bit to put away) in an area where rent is about $600 per month, with no dependents?

What other things are there to factor in besides car insurance, health insurance, gas, and groceries?

Your Body is a Wonderlaaaand

1. Who do you consider to have a perfect body? Or just the most hottest/amazing/enviable body you can think of? USE PICTURES!!! Or link to some.

2. If you could steal just one body part of theirs to put on yours, what would it be?

ETA: I guess I'm asking about a body the same gender as yours. But you can do opposite as well. Go nuts.

Sometimes the music store I go to has little notes on albums like "Holy shit! BUY ME!" haha. Today I saw one that said, "This band is hype/trash." How would you interpret that? Was that suppose to make me want to buy it?

Edit: It was a Fleet Foxes album.

I have a lot of heavy whipping cream just sitting in my fridge.

I'm sort of considering making Jello, and adding some of the cream before I put it in the fridge to set.

Would this be interesting/possibly delicious, or just a waste of Jello mix and cream?

ETA: I tried it with just a bit of the Jello, and it was good, though not as good as I'd hoped. Then again, I also put it in the freezer rather than the fridge due to impatience, so maybe that's why it set? It had the normal Jello-y consistency though.

possibly a long shot, but any of you TQCers good at chemistry?

this is the last problem i need to do for a prelab...
"If 0.500 g of antacid was added to 50.00 mL of 0.100 M HCl and 6.65 mL of 0.100 M NaOH was required to titrate the un-neutralized HCl, calculate the actual neutralizing capacity of the antacid in mmol H+ per gram antacid"

i've got that there are 5.00 mmol of H+ total, and 0.0222 g of NaOH were used, but i don't really know where the fuck to go from there. i am offering sexual favors to anyone who can steer me in the right direction.

How many languages do you speak? [fluently or rubbishly, whatever floats your boat]

Who would play you in a film about your life? And who would play your current [or last] SO?

We have established that it is not okay for a man to hit a woman, but is it okay for a woman to hit a man?
And by "hit", I mean exactly what one would imply when they say a man is hitting a woman. Slapping, hitting, punching, kicking.

Why is it that so many marijuana dispensaries in CA can manage to remain so open and operating at the same time? Wouldn't it be super easy for them to obtain warrants?

Cheating on exams

Hey guys.
1. Do you have any other words (slang or not...) for cheat sheets?
I know where I come from, this thing is so well-developed we have very imaginative cheat sheets, but I never heard any of my online friends mentioning those anywhere... so.. 2. Have you ever cheated? I feel embarrassed asking this seeing as I got the impression that cheating is so taboo in the US, but my friends from the Balkans and from Russia alwys have a laugh talking about their adventures :p
3. Do I have a wrong impression?
4. What is your favourite cheating method?

Okay. So you're signed up for a college-level class that meets once a week for 2 hours and 45 minutes. The class has been in session for about a month and a half now, and your first exam in this class is this coming Saturday.

Why would you make posts on the class' message board on the WEDNESDAY NIGHT before the exam: a) asking what material the prof has covered in class because you haven't managed to get your lazy ass out of bed ONCE to go to class, or b) telling the class that you ordered your textbook online a few days ago and you won't receive it until Friday at the earliest, so would someone please PHOTOCOPY the 6 chapters that the exam is on so you can study?

WHY IN THE HELL WOULD YOU DO THAT???



Will you relate to me your last *HEADDESK* moment?
